Pesto Chicken Florentine
Extremely rich combination of chicken, spinach and creamy pesto sauce. Serve with crunchy bread and romaine salad--it's the best!
Canadian Pork Loin Chops
I came up with this recipe as I love maple and mustard. We wanted to add more flavor and not dry out the boneless loin chops. Spice rub marinade, lightly breaded with a maple-mustard glaze, and cooked in garlic-flavored oil - a great Canadian recipe! This is also great on the BBQ. Perfect with roasted potatoes and a coleslaw.
Best Steak Marinade in Existence
This easy blended marinade is a family-favorite and great for beef.
Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles
This is a simple recipe with a spicy kick for garlic lovers. It is my combination of a much loved linguine and clam sauce dish and a recent introduction to orzo pasta. I have several variations for this recipe. Add more red pepper for extra spice. Substitute the chicken for clams or shrimp. Substitute the spinach leaves for diced tomatoes. I've also added spices such as basil, rosemary and oregano bringing a distinct Italian flavor to the dish.
This is an adapted family recipe. It is a lot of work, but worth the effort. If you do not have a slow cooker, you can bake the ribs for 2 to 3 hours, covered, in the oven.
Pasta with Asparagus
This is a great low-fat asparagus and pasta dish. I serve it to company all the time. Serve with a fruit salad and French bread.
Asparagus, Chicken, and Pecan Pasta
Penne pasta tossed with asparagus, red peppers, pecans, and Parmesan cheese in a delicious sauce that is creamy without being over-powering. This has been a tremendous hit every time I've made it.
Mushroom Chicken Piccata
Classic Piccata reaches a new peak with the marvelous addition of mushrooms! This is a favorite in our family. Serve with rice and a green salad if desired.
Chef John's Italian Sausage Chili
This sausage chili recipe turned out with great results. I had added pork to ground beef chili before but never tried it with only Italian sausage. I Italian'd this up even more with cannellini beans and a hint of oregano, but other than that, it's a fairly typical chili. Garnish with sour cream, avocado, red onion, and basil.
Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon
This recipe is simple to make, yet impressive. The marinade gives the fish a sweet taste that my family goes nuts for! If it's too cold out to grill it, you also may broil it.
Pistachio-Crusted Rack of Lamb
Rich pistachios add fabulous taste and texture to a delicious rack of lamb.
